Is it possible to upgrade a laptop screen?

Recommended Posts

If they do the same chassis/model with a higher res screen then odds are you can replace it with one of those, just need to work out what panel is being used. Perhaps try tftcentral or similar see if you can locate the replacement, or search for the updated models replacement parts on ebay/etc

Most of the times when the screen resolution changes the connection harness changes. It is not going to be a one for one swap.

 

Dont do it!

This is not great advice. Just because a line has an upgraded screen does not mean that it would work.

Hey never said was a good idea, but that wasn't the question. 

 

It is technically possible, whether it's a good idea or not is another question. Obviously not a great idea, I'd return it if I could and buy a different laptop, but hey.

I guess I shouldn't do it so soon. Maybe near the EoL would be a better idea if I still have it then
